Annika Romeyn: Endurance
EXHIBITION: Annika Romeyn Endurance
4th February 2020 - 29th February 2020
Flinders Lane Gallery
Please join us and the artist for the opening of this exhibition on Saturday 8 February from 1-3pm. RSVP appreciated.
Beyond describing the rock-face and its multiplicity of form, Romeyn hopes to create experiential artworks coloured by her memories and feelings of wilderness areas actively explored by foot, raft or kayak. Working across the mediums of drawing, painting and printmaking, she is particularly interested in the intersection between the intimate and the infinite, the immediate and the ancient.
Endurance draws inspiration from the personally significant site of Guerilla Bay, Yuin Country (South Coast, NSW): a beautiful place that will always be intertwined with memories of Summer 2016/17, the last shared with my Mum. Around that time I encountered Rebecca Solnit's thoughts on ‘the blue of distance' (the blue at the horizon, which we can never quite reach). In the process of revisiting and reimagining such a powerful site from the physical and temporal distance of my studio, blue suggested an appropriate sense of memory and emotion. The fluidity of the watercolour monotype medium directed the atmosphere of the work, while the drips came to signify a release, disrupting the otherwise carefully rendered environment and breaking the horizon to link sea and sky. The rock formations of Guerilla Bay are some of the oldest on the east coast of Australia, dating back as far as 510 million years, offering a humbling perspective in line with the words of Frédéric Gros: "Walking in nature gives you a feeling of duration that exceeds your own existence."
